Having (or should I say ‘surviving’) an abusive relationship isn’t something that people like to discuss. Just like nobody talks about rebuilding their life after escaping such a relationship. But it is really important!
When I finally escaped the abusive relationship I was in, I didn’t feel the need to talk about it at first. I kept it hidden for over a year, and then I realised I had to do something. I had to acknowledge that this happened to me, for real. And I wanted to make sure I never had to go through it again.
So I opened up to my husband. About my past, my insecurities and why I sometimes act really weird. And it felt good, I felt more like myself. Powerful and free.
This article helped me cope with it a bit, I’d like to share this with you hoping that it will make some changes in your life too.
